Family Promise is a charitable organization that utilizes existing resources of local faith communities. Synagogues and churches work together to assist children and their families that have become homeless in our community. The program provides temporary shelter, meals, and support services. The goal is to restore the families to sustained independence. Family Promise of South Palm Beach County(FPSPBC) has been serving homeless families with children in Palm Beach County since November of 2008. It is the local affiliate of the national Family Promise program founded in 1988. There are over 150 affiliates in 39 states throughout the nation and B’nai Torah is proud to partner with Family Promise to help combat homelessness within our community.
